We, my husband and myself, went to Egypt recently for a pleasure trip. We reached at Cairo on 18th October 2010 evening and needed an accommodation for a night, as we were scheduled to leave for Luxor on 19th Oct. The hotel (we stayed at their QABANA wing) is situated in the heart of downtown area, walking distance from the Egyptian Museum. The corridors and the room of the hotel were gloomy, room had no ventilation, so you have to keep the AC on all the time. Shower in the attached toilet of our room was broken and the drainage system was faulty hence the room flooded with water while I was using the toilet. We had to call the hotel staff for rescue. Can't say if all their rooms and toilets are like that! Breakfast was delayed because they had shortage of staff, however, one of the persons sitting in the reception, who received us warmly when we checked in, managed to get us bread, butter, jam and hot tea. Those two guys were amazing and tried their best to make us comfortable, but the room was too bad and their entrance doesn't tell you that it's Qabana. One who doesn't know that Qabana is a part of Alexander hotel, might get confused, just like us. The entrance is rather shady with an ancient elevator, which has broken doors.
Thank God that we chose to stay with them for just 1 night! Won't recommend at all!
